To go to this waterfall, one has to cross a small river where water is above knee level. No worries, there is a rope for you to hold onto to cross over the other end. Once passed, you have to climb steps with uneven rocks, quite slippery, the air is fresh, along the way, you can see birds, flowers. Once... More

I love love love this place. It's the most impressive place to share with foreign friends visiting an equatorial country BUT.....not during the holidays. You won't be able to get a picture without a swamp of people in it. I'm serious, you're practically struggling to find a spot to stand let alone take a nice picture. During the low season,... More

The waterfall was nice but you can only see the rainbow after the sun have rose high up and it disappear around 10-11am. The journey to waterfall was adventurous.

You should make this trip if you love nature and adventure. Situated deep in the jungle of Pahang is the Rainbow Waterfall. It is so called because rainbow is formed when the morning sunlight nit the falling water of the majestic waterfall. However, if you were to go during the dry season you may be disappointed because the rainbow may... More

No leprechauns to be found or pot of gold either...but a perfectly formed rainbow greeted us as we scaled the last rocks to reach the waterfall. The view and the water was so refreshing! Made my wife's day as she was smiling with glee at the Rainbow. Be careful though, the area surrounding the waterfall is slippery. Watch your footing!

There wasn't much rainfall over the period and the water level at the fall was rather low. That resulted in low water flow and hence no rainbow. What a bummer! But because we went on a weekday, there were very few visitors and no big crowds and we could lie in the water and soak ourselves without anybody getting in... More

Interesting! We went in with four wheel drive (taking an hour ride) and half an hour jungle trekking but unfortunately the rainbow waterfall has very little water coming down and therefore, can see only a very small rainbow for a short while. Same thing, after climbed half an hour all the way up to the Bukit panorama early morning reached... More

Went to the rainbow falls. I had booked the tour with the lodging I was staying at. It's an early morning. Breakfast at the market at 530 before setting off at 630am. Everyone is loaded onto the 4wd pickups (eg hilux) and the drive to and from town is about an hour each way. On the way to the falls,... More

There was no rainbow visible during the half day trip, anf no sunrise seen on the peak before the rainbow waterfall. However it was stilll a worthwhile trip of excitement and thrill on a four wheelbdrive oveelooking the rainforest. We had a goodnl swim. The coldness of water and the greenery have made the fifty ringgit trip a memorable experience!
